For 2016, we've moved the festival up a month to the first Saturday in September... the start of fall and better weather!
East Petersburg will play host to the 6th annual Gypsy Moon Blues Festival on Saturday, September 3rd 2016 from 3pm through 8pm. Over the years the festival has featured some of the most talented blues players in Central Pennsylvania and beyond.
For 2016, a great lineup includes local favorites Nate Myers & The Aces, Blues on the Loose and Wake Up Call. Visiting from the Philly area is Laura Cheadle and the Family Band and from Connecticut the headline act is the Balkun Brothers. Since the Balkun Brothers played a few years back they have gone on to bigger and better things… They have toured Europe and played numerous festivals. They have won Connecticut Blues artist of the year and continue to work hard and build their following.
As always, we'll be repeating the closing all-player blues jam that proved so popular last year will return as well as our great food and vendors - a special hat tip to the Blues Society of Central PA and their incredible support!
Here's the lineup:
3:00-3:40 - Blues On The Loose
4:00-4:40 - Wake Up Call
5:00-5:40 - Nate Myers And The Aces
6:00-6:40 - Laura Cheadle and The Family Band
7:00-7:40 - Balkun Brothers
Jam till the end around 8pm!
